Since every school needs a mascot, we have one, too! Meet "Smiley" the spider! Bear named him since he thinks Smiley's belly looks like a smiley face. He hangs out on the window closest to Bear's seat and they are quite fond of each other. We did a little research on Smiley and found that she's a female spiny orb weaver. She has a few male friends in the nearby cedar trees and we've enjoyed finding them also. Hopefully Smiley will stick around awhile!
